Ten Dartmouth students and alumni have been awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships for 2022, and another nine received honorable mentions.

By providing financial support to students who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited U.S. institutions, including a $34,000 annual stipend and a yearly $12,000 cost-of-education allowance, the program “helps ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science and engineering in the United States and reinforces its diversity,” according to the NSF website.

“We are enormously proud of these promising researchers, who have been recognized for hard work and excellence,” says Jon Kull ’88, dean of the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies and the Rodgers Professor of Chemistry. “They are all engaged in projects that will make a significant impact in years to come.”
